Dear Bankless Nation,
ETH the collateral. MKR the protocol. YFI the robot.
Mariano called these the asset triforce on SOTN this week. They all culminated in the release of one of DeFi’s most highly anticipated products this week—the yETH vault—a money robot for stacking ETH.
And sure enough…the vault soaked up 0.35% of the total ETH supply in a matter of hours. (It’s closed for new deposits now—YFI doesn’t want “too big too fast”)
All this value locked…buy why isn’t the price of ETH rising? Here’s my take.
We also released our most downloaded podcast episode yet. Seems we finally found someone who’s more bullish than David and I—and he’s been contrarian right for the past two years—meet Vance Spencer from Framework. 🔥
Coming next week:
Postcast with Stani from Aave Monday. Why’s LEND’s up 3,300% this year?
AMA with Loopring next Thursday. How do we solve 400 gwei gas prices?
Lucas gonna show you how to farm like a pro. Where are the best yields?
P.S. last day for this awesome 20% Ledger sale—use “BANKLESS” code
